President Trump's unpredictability may extend to his appointment of Securities and Exchange Commissioner members, according to financial industry government relations officials. "He may choose independents.

Trump could do extraordinary things. We've seen that as a candidate, and now we're seeing that as a president." Read the original story from InvestmentNews.
